Nothing to the Imagination……

Rather than presenting the image with no explanation and leaving it to your imagination re what the image is, I decided to explain each image. Yesterday afternoon, the sun high, I visited an old restoration/recycle company. In back, near a loading dock, they store all manner of metal pieces for creative renovations or industrial art. The shadows were crisp, the pieces rusted and ordinary, save a few. So, I took a few shots and here they are. Some are obvious and some would have been good ‘I wonder what that is?’ moments. The back loading dock had all manner of objects that are unique, decorative pieces.

Piles of Debris Go With Change & Renewal

“Home is a place you grow up in and can’t wait to leave….but, growing older you wish you could return.”

photography-SwittersB-piles-renovation-collageA renovation of an old house creates improvements along the way and an equal amount of debris seems to accumulate in piles here and there. Loads are taken away but new piles develop day by day in proportion to the work completed. A positive perspective is necessary to look beyond the debris and toward the improvements taking place…such is life. But you have to be building toward something.

Roman Tiles With Paw Prints…….

photography-tiles-mortar-renovation-SwittersBNo not these tiles….these are only 60 years old from my renovation. But, a discovery of Roman tile work in England revealed animal foot prints…a pet? Live Science
